Researchers found that women who acquire a benign breast illness diagnosis through screening have an almost doubled risk of acquiring breast cancer.
Variable voltages have been discovered in the membranes of breast cancer cells, revealing information about how the cells grow and spread.
The risk of breast cancer is almost doubled in women diagnosed with benign breast disease through screening, according to research presented at the 13th European Breast Cancer Conference.
Cancer that splits and develops in new organs around the body becomes significantly more difficult to fight. Now, researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have shown that these metastatic cancers, that spread from the original, adapt their metabolism to the tissue in which t

Some medications for these illnesses dissolve in water, making it impossible to carry them through the intestines, which process food and drink. As a result, these medications can't be taken by mouth. But UCR researchers have developed a chemical "tag" that can be attached to these medicatio
An experimental therapeutic cancer vaccine induced two distinct and desirable immune system responses that led to significant tumour regression in mice, report investigators.
